December Favorites

1:55:00 AM


Even though it has been quite a while since last December 2015, we wanted to tell you all what our favorites for that month was. *Disclaimer this post is not sponsored by any of the brands mentioned, we love these products all on our own.

FATIMA'S FAVS



Makeup

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation (NC37) - 8/10 Price: $32.00 this product is very full coverage and has a nice creamy texture that moisturizes my skin but doesn't add any unwanted oils. It doesn't come with a pump and if you want one it costs $10 which is annoying. 

Naked "Flushed" Contour Kit (Strip) - 8.5/10 Price: $32.00 so I bought this kit because I really needed a good blush and highlighter combo, although this comes with a bronzer I've only used it once and wasn't entirely impressed with it. I love that they have three different kits so you can choose the color of all 3 products, and definitely enjoy the way it goes on and how long it lasts. 

Makeup Forever Sensitive Eye Cleanser - 9.5/10 Price: $11.00 removing eye makeup can be such a painful and tedious task but this cleanser takes it right off and doesn't irritate my eyes. Such a good product! 

ColourPop Lippie Stix - 10/10 Price: $5.00 I am absolutely obsessed with ColourPop's products and they are such high quality for an incredible price. The Lippie Stix are so silky and the color lasts for a long time! I recommend getting the lip liners to match because they're amazing as well! 

Fashion

Capes/Ponchos - 11/10 Price: vary- $129+ @ Zara. Capes have been one of the it statements of this season and with good reason. They're so cozy, chic, and can make any outfit go from drab to fab in seconds. My blue cape from Zara, which is featured on our Instagram, was a Christmas present and absolutely my current favorite piece. 

Longline vests - 9/10 Price: vary- $39.00+ @ Zara. Also featured on our Instagram is one of my outfits with my white vest from Zara. They can honestly be styled in so many ways and just look so trendy on everyone. Definitely a must have! 

Air Max 90's - 10/10 Price: $120 @ Nike. Also another Christmas present and featured on our Instagram, is my new rose gold Air Max's. They are honestly the most comfortable sneakers I've worn and all the styles they have are so so cute! I want more!!! 

Brow Bar Sunglasses - 10/10 Price: vary-  $30 @ Express. Many of you have probably seen these on your favorite celebrities as they are the most trendy sunglasses of the moment. They were originally designed by Dior and Olivia Palermo also has her own line, but as most things many other stores have created their own budget friendly pairs. I'm obsessed with the style and honestly think they look amazing on any face shape. 

Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac Crossbody Bag - 9/10 Price: $195.00 @ Bloomingdales. My sister gave me a RM bag in maroon for Christmas and I am in love with it. The key detail is adorable and the bags can go with absolutely every outfit, for any occasion. For a small bag, they fit a lot and the different leather markings and details ensure that everyone has a one of a kind bag! 

Technology 

Phhhoto App - 9/10 Price: Free! This app is very new and not many people use it, but the basic idea is that you get to make your own gif style photos and share them with your friends. It's similar to Boomerang but this app is not connected to Instagram. I just think it's really fun and the different filters they have are always so cool! 

NICOLE'S FAVS



Throughout the whole month of December, I was able to try out new styles/routines that I haven't tried before which mainly include: hoop earrings, ankle booties, and many lip scrubs. 


Makeup

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Concealer 9/10 Price: $27.00 @ Sephora The month of December meant a lot of nights staying up because of studying and assignments, which also meant very minimal sleep! Finding the right concealer has been a journey, however I found that this one was fairly easy to work with every morning and the coverage is incredible. Definitely pricey, but worth it. I'm still on the hunt for something cheaper, yet just as high quality. I'll keep you all posted once I find it!


Lush Lip Scrub (Mint Julip and Bubble Gum) 9/10 Price: $9.95 each @ Lush The worst thing besides dry skin is DRY CHAPPED LIPS. No matter how much chapstick I put on, it was a constant battle against the cold weather. Lip scrubs were my saviors for December and kept my lips super nice and smooth. If you don't want to invest in these amazing smelling scrubs, honey and brown sugar works just as great.

Fashion

Forever 21 Round Sunglasses 10/10 Price: $7.90 @ in-store and online @ F21 Sunglasses in the winter? I instantly fell in love for three reasons: 1. I was in dire need of a new pair of sunnies since I had broken my last ones 2. they compliment my face shape really nicely 3. the color. They were also very reasonably priced and they have been my go-to whenever I head out of the house.


Gold Hoop Earrings 10/10 Price: $3.00 @ F21 I haven't worn earrings in such a long time, so when I started wearing them again, I couldn't resist going for hoops. I don't regret the decision and it automatically dresses up any outfit. I can't lie, it does make me look a bit older too.


Circus by Sam Edelman Jolie Bootie 10/10 Price: $80 @ DSW  I adore these. Not only do they are they comfortable and add height, but they match and dress up any outfit. These were my go-to shoes of December and are my favorite in my whole shoe collection. 


J.Crew Matte Chelsea Rain Boots 8/10 Price: $68 @ JCREW As much as I love regular tall rain boots, I appreciate how these short rain boots managed to be so light, stylish, and protect my feet from the rain. These are very casual and very easy to slip on and off.
A&F Meg Sherpa Lined Parka 10/10  Price: $80 (on sale) @ A&F Big jackets, especially olive green parkas, are basically a must have in anyone's closet. Rain or shine, they are SO comfortable and SO warm.



A&F Down Series Hooded Lightweight Puffer Jacket 10/10 Price: $140 @ A&F  This has been the first time that I have ever owned puffer jackets and let me tell you, THEY ARE AMAZING. They are so light, not too hot and not too cold when outside, and the burgundy color made it that much more perfect. Still wearing it throughout January, it still looks brand new. I'm in the process of ordering other colors. Big thumbs up from me. 

Hair

CONAIR Instant Heat 1-1/4" Curling Iron @ Target 11/10 Price: $26.99 Since my hair has been fading into more blonde from silver/lilac, I have been needing to curl my hair to hide some of those awkward fade lines. Conair has been such a trusty brand to me for years and it doesn't fail t okeep impressing. So easy to use, heats up quickly, and gives you effortless curls.
